IT HAS BEGUN! (PLUS A CYPRESS MOUNTAIN TICKET GIVEAWAY)

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Scroll down for the giveaway! Yesterday Allan and I made it up to Cypress Mountain for our very first day of the 2011/2012 ski and snowboard season! In the SECOND week of November! Crazy! Yes indeed, Cypress Mountain was the first ski resort to open in British Columbia and one of the first in North America!

Although the runs and chairlifts were limited, it was amazing to get our first turns in for the season. And with all the fresh snow on top of lots of snowmaking, it made for a fantastic first day. Lots of fun! Cypress also had some boxes and jumps set up on the side of the runs for some freestyle riding. Can you believe the mountain has opened already! Get your legs ready!

And because we had such a fantastic day on the mountain, thanks to Cypress Mountain we are giving away TWO full-day alpine ski passes!

It's snowing! @cypressmtn First turns of the season!

OUR ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS!!!!!

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

I am SOOOOOO excited to finally be able to share with you our ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS by our amazing photographers Jonetsu Studios!

Yes yes, we got engaged a year and a half ago, but we only just got around to doing our engagement session… what a busy year! Time just flies. Can you believe we are just a week and a half away to our wedding?!?! Just crazy.

Our Engagement Photos!

This is by far our favourite photo from the day. Allan and I climbed up this 8 ft stone structure in the middle of a park in my dress and his suit! Good thing we both spent lots of time climbing things in our childhood ;)

Jonetsu Photography did this deluxe engagement session with us that took place over the course of an entire afternoon and evening. I am so happy and proud to say they are also our wedding photographers. We absolutely cannot wait to share our special day with them and know that we are in good hands. We are friends with about 6 different couples who have also gotten their photos done with Camille and Chadwick Bensler, and the number one thing they say about Jonetsu is they make you feel both comfortable and beautiful. This was 100% true.

Allan and I were both super nervous going into this shoot and within 5 minutes they made us feel relaxed! They let us focus on the connection with each other instead of worrying about how we were looking or what we were doing. I think it’s resulted in some of the most natural photos Allan and I have ever taken! And that’s saying a lot because anyone who knows me knows I am suuuuuuper posy ;)

Without further ado… here are our engagement photos!
